The Decemberists

the first time i heard The Decemberists was when they played We Both Go Down Together on Conan. the odd looking bunch of musicians and their unusual mix of instruments appealed to me and I bought a few of their songs off ITunes.

lunato found out somehow and they were going to play in Toronto on 6th of November and she got tickets for us :D The concert was at the Kool Haus in downtown Toronto.. right besides the lakeshore.

lunato had been to concerts back home in Korea and my first and only concert so far was the Junoon concert in Toronto during Pakistan's Independence Day in 2001 or 2002.. I forget. So technically it was the first concert for both of us.

They played quite a lot of songs and interacted a LOT with the audience. It was a really enjoyable concert and they played our favourite song as well. I also liked Yankee Bayonet a lot and it is another fav song for us now. Some other notable songs: O Valencia, On The Bus Mall, The Perfect Crime, and Sixteen Military Wives.

Eid at Mandarin

eid mubarak!! Did you know that eid is the celebration at end of Ramadan and it’s supposed to be one of the biggest holiday in Islam?

We all got money from sikander's mom in celebration (very nice holiday :D:D). We also went out in the afternoon. Alidooh got purple glasses and forced us to call him "didi ali". oh didi ali, you and your uniqueness… sikander’s mom said "alidooh himself is unique". I think so too, in a nice way :)

By the way, sikander’s mom and alidooh can talk forever. They are so happy talking whatever between each other.. so I got a bit jealous and told alidooh "alidooh, you should have married to sikander so that you and mom can a good relationship" "lunato, yes I would have a great time with mom but I would have a terrible relation ship with sikander. so don’t be jealous."

To celebrate the day we went to Mandarin restaurant.. their Ontario Headquarter location!!!

toronto zombie walk 2006

A Zombie Walk in downtown Toronto? Don’t people have better things to do? People these days.

Well, since we (lunato, sikander, and alidooh) have "nothing to do" why don’t we go there and see what’s happening :D

Next year, we will definitely be in the zombies group dressed up as zombies and not just spectators. Alidooh, you would be the first Somali zombie :D
